I like DJ Bernstein's daemontools package a lot. And I use it on my system. I am only bothered by the fact that it starts lots of supervise processes, even for the services that are down. So I started to write a minimal replacement package and called it minit. While there are no boot scripts for minit yet, it could be used as init replacement on embedded systems (no ctrl-alt-del handling so far).

It does have a few cool features like dependencies (with loop detection) and it does not require /proc to be mounted or the file system to be mounted read-write, it does not use System V IPC and it still allows you to start and stop services on-the-fly (without having to edit a config file and sending SIGHUP).

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
